We were fortunate enough to have Moha as our private driver as we embarked on our trip into the sahara desert. he was very friendly and gave us information about each stop en route. also was very attentive to our needs of what time we wanted to eat and stay at each location. In addition to that, the country is a treasure trove of experiences – steeped in history, culture, contradictions, spectacular geography and sensational food. upgrading to the luxury camp in the desert was well worth it. thanks Moha for making this a memorable 4 days fes to marrakech desert tour and for ensuring we felt safe at all times. we fervently hope to go back and, if we do, it will be with MTT.
Chris / 5 out of 5 / Couple Traveller / 1 April 2021
We took Morocco Tabiarte Tours’s four days/ three nights private tour from Fes to Marrakech. they tailored the tour to our requests and interests. Furthermore, We spent two nights in Merzouga, did camel ride and one night at the Hotel in the dades Gorge.
Our guide/driver, Moha, was the best. also He was always in a good mood and very accommodating to our requests and needs. His entertaining stories and discussions about Morocco culture and religion made the long drives informative and interesting. His efforts and sense of humor really made it an amazing adventure. We traveled in a comfortable Toyota Land Cruiser, which Moha carefully and safely drove. highly recommend Moha.
On the other hand, we spent much of one day exploring along the desert dunes with Moha. drove through several small villages along the sand dunes and visited the Gnaoua house and listened to their music. We also had the opportunity to visit nomad people and had a cup of tea with them. a very enjoyable day and highly recommended.
MTT team always quickly responded to all our emails while we were planning the tour. all aspects of the tour were very professional.
Victoria Gregory / 5 out of 5 / Group Traveller / 28 February 2021
We had a private tour, which was fabulous in every way. The attractions were incredible, each spot had its own unique look. The van was quite comfortable and spacious. On the other hand, the hotels and the camp they booked for us were amazing. Mostly, the best guide (Moha) made this journey so special. He quickly understood our focus on photography, our physical capabilities, and also interests. This person had an unbelievable wealth of knowledge according to all the spots. Not only were we fortunate to have this guide, but made a new friend. We highly recommend Morocco Tabiarte Tours and would gladly use them again. Read More Morocco tour’s reviews
